"Currently we see in the media various speculations about his activities".

Ambrose Mutinhiri, a retired general and acolyte of ex-president Robert Mugabe, resigned from the ruling ZANU-PF party and gave up his parliamentary seat last Friday.

Days after United States president Donald Trump extended sanctions on Zimbabwe under President Emmerson Mnangagwa's government, the United States has said that sanctions are always under review.

Chipanga is one of the expelled Zanu PF members who has been linked by social media reports to the new Mutinhiri led political outfit as its Secretary for the Commissariat. We will only take a position when the issues are known and are factual.

"The workers were denied access to food or water and they were being asked names of the people who have been visiting the former president", an unnamed source told the paper.

Wicky was pleased with the response of his players after the 4-0 loss in the first leg. He has to grow up and make strong but the huge quality is there'.

Other analysts said that Mnangagwa had every reason to be concerned by Mugabe's sudden re-emergence on the political scene. Since his dramatic reversal of fortune, he has largely appeared to stay out of public life.

Despite the NPF's emergence and the ensuing trepidation at the top of ZANU-PF, the pretender party is unlikely to make significant inroads at the polls.

'The normal thing would have been for him to retire quietly, ' he said.

The NPF issued its first statement yesterday, tacitly revealing that Mugabe had endorsed the party when he met Mutinhiri at his "Blue Roof" mansion in the leafy Borrowdale area on Sunday.

Another analyst, Maxwell Saungweme, said: "Mugabe will succeed in causing mayhem and confusion in Zanu PF".

It also vowed to ensure "there is no interference by the army, or those that would want to resort to violence as a means of getting votes".
